Auditions

Thank you for your interest in auditioning for Winifred Haun & Dancers!

Auditions for the September 2019 to May 2020 contract period will be held:

Sunday, September 15, 2019
1:00pm to 4:00pm
Lou Conte Dance Studio at Hubbard St. Dance Center
1147 W. Jackson, Chicago

There is no fee to Audition.

We are currently seeking female and male dancers. Dancers must be available for rehearsals on Mondays and Wednesdays from 9:30am to 1:00pm and some Fridays and be available for performances in October and November 2019 & February 2020. Contract includes Company class, touring, and rehearsal and performance pay.

Qualified candidates will possess a strong technical background in ballet, modern and contemporary dance and performing experience. Knowledge of Circus acrobatic and/or aerial techniques is a plus.

No pre-registration required. If you have a resume and photo, feel free to bring them, but don’t make any special effort to produce these things especially for this Audition. We mostly just want to see you dance.

We won’t teach a warm-up, so feel free to come early to warm yourself up. All dancers should be ready to dance at 1:00pm. The Audition will go like this:
1. We’ll teach an adagio combination and make cuts right afterwards.
2. We’ll teach a jump combination and/or Company repertory combination and make more cuts.
3. About 8-12 dancers will stay and learn Company repertory.

Decisions will be made by Friday, September 20, 2019. You’ll be notified by phone and/or email.

Some dancers may be invited to participate in our Associate Dancer program, which allows qualified advanced dancers to take Company Class for free and to attend rehearsals to learn Company repertory. Associate Dancers are often invited to perform with the Company, and many current Company Dancers are former Associate Dancers.
